Big Brother is my all time favorite television show and I'm not even kidding. I buy the 24/7 feeds every year too. I can't get enough.

I love Rock Star INXS too. In fact I love everything about reality TV. I started with Cops many many years ago and I was all over The Real World from season 1 show 1.

Reality TV = my all time guilty pleasure for sure

I absolutely love Radio 1. I've started listening to it on my way to work and not only enjoy the genius mix of music, but the pop culture references and such.

The English are so much cooler than we are.

There is a licensing fee that people pay to listen (not sure how much that is).

The license fee is currently £126.50 a year which is about $220. The license fee is for BBC Tv and BBC radio channels. The other tv & radio stations have commercials

Default Music on BBC Radio 1

Without a doubt BBC1 is the best new addition to Sirius.

I find myself listening to it 3-4 hours a day most every afternoon once the talk programs I like are over. It is a great station, and I am very glad Sirius offers it!

I listen to Scott Mills every afternoon.

His show manages to walk the fine line between cool and dorky.

BBC1 drives me nuts. I like the music. But the DJ's constantly talk between and on top of songs and I end up changing the station.

Default BBC Radio 1

So far I think Radio 1 is a great addition to the other Sirius music channels, especially Zane Lowe. He broadcasts at 7:00 pm EST and he always plays an eclectic mix of music - Audio Bullys, Imogen Heap, The Magic Numbers, The Cloud Room, etc. If you want to see his playlist (or that of any other Radio 1 D.J.) for that any any day simply visit BBC.com and choose the Radio 1 link. Find your favorite D.J. and click on their playlist for the day and it lists the artist and song title based on the time the cut was played. Now, no matter what time of day I'm listening, as long as I know the time the track was broadcast I can get the information and becuase of the time difference, this information is always available.

I hope this helps with those of you interested.

I've been a casual listener of Radio 1 over the years, mostly the Essential Mix on Saturdays, so the addition of the channel to Sirius is great in my opinion!

I just made a cross country drive a few days ago and the majority of the time was spent listening to Radio 1. Because of that trip, I was introduced to a whole new range of musical interests. Also love the hosts and the crazy things they do between songs.

Love Radio 1!

I've been listening to BBC R1 since my subscription...it's really great, especially they play the real pop-music, some may be cheesy but still, pop these days has been too polluted by hip-hop and rap.

I'm listening to BBC Radio 1 at the moment. They have some folk music playing on now. I've no idea that folk music is popular over there.

I tried listening this morning, and noted that the audio quality was unusually awful. Normally, I enjoy listening to the Chris Moyles show and the songs that are played, but the sound turned me away.

Did anyone else notice that? It was between 8 and 9 a.m. EST.

The sound quality on BBC Radio 1 has been poor since Monday morning. I hope this clears up soon.
